High Speed Rail Advocates Say 2010 Key Year – WBBM 780 – Chicago’s #1 source for local news, traffic and weather

CHICAGO (WBBM) — Advocates for high-speed rail passenger service, meeting in Chicago, said Saturday that this is the year to seek what they want from Washington and laid out an ambitious agenda that calls for higher-speed passenger trains nationwide.

Midwest High Speed Rail Coalition Executive Director Rick Harnish said he believes President Obama is predisposed to making 100 miles-per-hour the minimum average speed for Amtrak service.

While Harnish’s immediate goal is a true high-speed, 220 mile-an-hour, rail link between Chicago and St. Louis by 2020, he wants to see a series of other steps funded that will make Chicago the nation’s high-speed rail hub.
